Poll: Social Democrats would win elections in 13 out of 14 regions

A new poll suggests that the Social Democrats would win every region in the country, with the exception of Prague. According to pollsters SANEP, TOP 09 would win in the capital if elections were held today, while the Civic Democrats would come in second overall. The junior coalition party Public Affairs crossed the 5% parliamentary threshold only in Prague, which would not however be enough to secure a seat in the lower house. The Christian Democrats on the other hand would be back in the running, crossing 5% in eight independent localities. That party was voted out of Parliament in last year’s elections for the first time in modern Czech history.
